'Since the revision of the Unemployment Insurance Act, effective October 2, 1955, no distinction is made between short-time, temporary layoff and ordinary 
claimants. Prior to October, data relate to ordinary claimants only. 

"Under the new Act, benefit payments are made on the basis of weeks instead of days. Number of days benefit paid in respect of unemployment prior to 
October 2, 1955 will continue to be shown until these payments on the old daily basis are gradually exhausted. 

Note. — ("On last working day of month. < 2 > Unless regular benefit only is specified, figures contain supplementary benefit from January 1 to April 15 each 

year (in 1952 to March 31). ("Prior to February 1955, estimate based on number of payments in week containing last working day of month; since that date estimate 

based on weekly average of number of payments. ("Revised to relate to the Thursday nearest to the last day of the month.

'"Estimated total unfilled orders on books at end of month, irrespective of work done on them or of stocks from which they can be filled, but less progress 
receipts in industries working on long term contracts. Sales in these industries include progress receipts. Estimates are derived by inflating the monthly reported 
values to total for each industry on the basis of the estimated total values for each industry at the end of December, 1953. The latter were obtained from.a survey of 
all manufacturing firms with a production value over "J50, 000. 

The sample of firms reporting monthly accounted for 75% of the total estimated Unfilled Orders Value in December, 1953. < 2 > Total New Orders received 

during the period, at estimated selling values. The series covers total New Orders, net of cancellations, regardless of whether the orders will be filled from stock or as 
a result of activity during the same month (and also be reported as shipments in the month received) or whether they will be added to existing backlogs.

•Construction of dwelling units. 

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5 000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample areas 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 1955, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 800.

'"The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and as of 1955, stands at 823, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation. «'As of January, 1950, Newfoundland is included.

Note. — This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 29 companies operating in Canada representing 90 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. 'Monthly data for 1955 are not strictly comparable with those of 1954 due to several company changes in the manner of reporting new business. 
On a comparable basis, the Canada total in November, 1955 was 16% above that of November, 1954. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada,

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes is based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received'are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of all companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

(1 > Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. < J > Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum arid Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. "'Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ECONOMIC INDICATORS 



With this issue of the Canadian Statistical Re- 
view, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics commences 
regular publication of selected economic indicators, 
adjusted for seasonal variation. About sixty-five 
economic time series, relating to the main aggre- 
gates of production, employment and domestic and 
foreign trade are presented for the year 1952 to 
date. The unadjusted data from 1952 to date, from 
which the present series are derived, may be found 
in tfie Canadian Statistical Review and its 1955 
Supplement. 

The publication of these data is preliminary in 
two senses. First, the series cover only a portion 
of the postwar period, although the seasonal ratios 
are based upon a longer record. It is planned to 
publish a reference paper in the near future contain- 
ing both seasonally adjusted and unadjusted data 
as well as seasonal ratios back to 1947. The docu- 
ment will also contain a more complete discussion 
of sources, methods, uses and limitations. Second, 
these data may be regarded as preliminary in that 
they cover mainly the major aggregates, while de- 
tailed adjustment of their components has been left 
for future development. As more experience is gain- 
ed in producing and using these series, it is ex- 
pected that further refinements will be forthcoming. 
New techniques of machine computation are expect- 
ed to provide future improvements. 

The decision to publish in advance of a full 
description of the methods employed was made in 
response to the pressing demand for this statis- 
tical tool. The early recognition and interpretation 
of economic conditions requires the use of monthly 
data. Basic movements in the economy are often 
obscured by large month-to-month seasonal (or 
intra-annual repetitive) fluctuations. Crude approx- 
imations to correct for this seasonal influence may 
be attempted by making year-to-year comparisons 
for the same month in succeeding years. As will be 
seen in many of the accompanying series, however, 
it is possible for the year-to-year comparison to be 
higher (lower) while the underlying trend-cyclical 
movement is lower (higher). Thus, when it is impor- 
tant to establish the direction of general underlying 
movements of the economy at times of cyclical 
turning points, analysts find it more accurate tc 
employ seasonally adjusted series. 

Seasonal adjustment may be accomplished by 
measuring the amount of seasonal amplitude and 
removing it from the unadjusted series. Sine* 
seasonal variation is repetitive each year, it can 
be assessed and measured quite accurately. The 
measurement begins with the recognition that each 
time series is a composite of trend-cycle, seasonal 
and irregular movements. As a first approximation 



to the trend-cycle component, a twelve-month center- 
ed moving average is drawn through the monthly un- 
adjusted data. The ratios of the unadjusted monthly 
data to the moving average represent the seasonal 
and irregular components. These ratios for the 
successive years of each month are then plotted on 
a chart, and a moving average is drawn through these 
ratios. This is to guide the statistician in noting 
any gradual tendency for the seasonal amplitude of 
particular months to shift or move. It will be noted, 
however, that the ratio represents a combination of 
seasonal and irregular elements. Before the season- 
al indexes are computed graphically, the outstand- 
ing cases of irregularity are eliminated, to permit a 
closer measurement of pure seasonal variation. The 
sum of the twelve monthly seasonal variations for 
each calendar year is adjusted to equal 1,200, and 
each seasonal index for every month is divided into 
the unadjusted data for the corresponding month. 
This last step yields the seasonally adjusted 
series, which are shown in the following pages. In 
the main, the seasonal indexes employed in the 
published series, while relatively stable, do man- 
ifest a tendency to shift slowly through time. For 
this reason, moving seasonals have been computed 
far most series.' 

In addition to seasonal variations, changes may 
occur from month-to-month and year-to-year merely 
as a result of a differing number of calendar working 
days. To eliminate this effect from the series, 
calendar variation adjustments were applied to 
foreign and domestic trade series, before seasonal 
adjustment. The presently published industrial 
production series are already adjusted for working 
day variation, while the employment indexes refer 
mainly to a working week basis, and thus do not 
reflect calendar variation. For these series, there- 
fore, no adjustment was necessary. Adjustments 
were made to retail sales data for clothing stores, 
shoe stores, variety stores, drug stores and res- 
taurants, to account for the shifting date of Easter 
between March and April. Experimentation is pro- 
ceeding on an adjustment to motor vehicle produc- 
tion series, for the shifting date of the model change- 
over. The seasonal variation in production is un- 
doubtedly related to this date, but the period cover- 
ed is insufficiently long to permit accurate measure- 
ment; in addition, the problem is complicated by the 
incidence of major labour disputes concurrent with 
the changeover date. 

The following charts and tables represent a 
selection of the more important monthly indicators, 
grouped under the headings of industrial production, 
employment, labour income, domestic trade, foreign 
trade and miscellaneous. The charts and tables will 
be repeated each month, and their coverage expanded 
or otherwise improved in due course.

LABOUR INCOME 

Paralleling the employment gains, labour income showed a pronounced increase in the spring of 1955. 
In 1953 and 1954 increases in rates of pay accounted for most of the steady rise in labour income at atime 
when employment was declining.

("Accrued net income of farm operators from farm production. The seasonally adjusted data include an arbitrary smoothing of crop production, standard seasonal 
adjustments for live-stock items and a seasonal adjustment for earnings of the Canadian Wheat Board. Because of the arbitrary elements too precise an interpretation 
should not be given the seasonally adjusted figures for this item. 

< 2 >This item differs from column 4, bottom of page 6, in that it excludes undistributed earnings (and the inventory valuation adjustment) of the Canadian 

Wheat Board. Source: Quarterly Reports; National Accounts, Income and Expenditure, D.B.S.

'"Estimated total unfilled orders on books at end of month, irrespective of work done on them or of stocks from which they can be filled, but less progress 
receipts in industries working on long term contracts. Sales in these industries include progress receipts. Estimates are derived by inflating the monthly reported 
values to total for each industry on the basis of the estimated total values for each industry at the end of December, 1953. The latter were obtained from a survey of 
all manufacturing firms with a production value over $50,000. 

The sample of firms reporting monthly accounted for 75% of the total estimated Unfilled Orders Value in December, 1953. (2) Total New Orders received 

during the period, at estimated selling values. The series covers total New Orders, net of cancellations, regardless of whether the orders will be filled from stock or as 
a result of activity during the same month (and also be reported as shipments in the month received) or whether they will be added to existing backlogs.

•Construction of dwelling units. 

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5.000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample areas 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 1955, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 800.

'"The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and as of 1955, stands at 823, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation. < 2 >As of January, 1950, Newfoundland is included.

Note. — This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 29 companies operating in Canada representing 90 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. ("The Canada totals for most months in 1954 and 1955 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national 

total are not yet available for the provinces. Although the Canada totals are comparable throughout, the provincial monthly data for 1955 are not strictly comparable 
with those of 1954 due to changes in the manner of reporting new business by several companies. The annual figures for Canada and the provinces are consistent on the 
revised basis. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance Agency Management Association, Hartford, Conn.

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes is based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of all companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

«) Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. (2 > Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum and Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. '"Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

Gross National Product At Record Level In 7955 

Canada's gross national product reached record 
heights in 1 955. The year w itnessed a sharp recovery 
from the mild contraction in economic activity 
which had characterized the period mid-1953 to mid- 
1954. Output of goods and services, which was 
beginning to rise in the latter part of 1954, expanded 
rapidly throughout 1955, and for the year as a whole 
was approximately 10 per cent higher than in the 
full year 1 954. The upswing I ifted the gross national 
product to $26.6 billion in 1955, compared with 
$24.1 billion in the previous year. 

With final product prices relatively stable, this 
increase reflected almost entirely an expansion in 
the volume of production, which showed the largest 
gain of any single post-war year. It may be recalled 
that in 1954 the volume of output declined by 3 per 
cent while some increases in the labour force and 
productive capacity were taking place. These 
developments made possible the very sharp increase 
in the volume of output in 1955. The increase over 
the year 1953, which was the previous peak year in 
terms of volume of production, is estimated to be of 
the order of 6 per cent. By the end of 1955, gross 
national product, seasonally adjusted, was running 
at a rate 11 per cent above the peak third quarter of 
1 953, in value terms. 

Several important expansionary factors contrib- 
uted to the $2.5 billion growth in output over the 
course of the year 1955. Of primary importance was 
the rise in personal expenditure on consumer goods 
and services, which led the advance in final pur- 
chases with a gain of $1.0 billion. All segments of 
consumer outlays showed increases, with a major 
advance recorded in the durable goods group. It is 
interesting to note that per capita consumption in 
volume terms was about 12 per cent above the 1949 
level in 1955, and that one-third of this increase 
occurred between 1954 and 1955. Per capita con- 
sumption of durable goods was 40 per cent above the 
year 1949. Accompanying this advance in the 
consumer sector, residential construction outlays 
showed a sharp rise in 1955, with a gain of $0.3 
billion or about 25 per cent. This increase reflected 
both the sharp rise in personal incomes as well as 
the ready availability of mortgage funds. Consumer 
outlays and housing expenditures together accounted 
for more than one-half of the increase in gross 
national expenditure in 1955. 

Exports of goods and services, which declined 
in 1954, recovered strongly in 1955, rising by $0.6 
billion or by 1 1 per cent. This strength in foreign 
demand for Canadian goods and services was 
associated with marked recovery of business activ- 
ity in the United States and the rising level of 



activity in overseas countries. The bulk of the 
gain in exports was concentrated in wood and wood 
products, iron and its products, and non-ferrous 
metals, with declines occurring in the agricultural 
products groups. 

Turning to the investment sector, business out- 
lays for plant, machinery and equipment absorbed 
$0.3 billion of the $2.5 billion increase in total 
output in 1955. It may be recalled that business 
investment outlays for new construction, and ma- 
chinery and equipment declined late in 1953 and 
early in 1954, after which time they remained 
relatively stable. During 1955, in response to a 
sharp rise in profits and the growing pressure of 
demand on existing capital facilities, business 
investment outlays began to rise and were moving 
upward strongly at year end. Imports of machinery 
and equipment items were especially heavy in the 
last half of the year. The outlook for 1956 is for a 
very pronounced increase in all types of investment 
in durable assets. 

Additional expansionary factors in 1955 were 
government expenditures for goods and services, 
which rose by $0.3 billion, with gains occurring at 
all three major levels; the larger grain crop, which 
contributed about $0.3 billion to the gain in total 
gross national product; and the swing in business 
inventories from liquidation in 1954 to net accumu- 
lation in 1955, amounting to $0.4 billion. Under 
these various stimuli, Canadian production rose at 
an uninterrupted pace throughout 1955, although a 
considerable part of both final and inventory demand 
was channelled into imports which rose by more than 
$0.7 billion over the year 1954. 

These changes in the pattern of final expendi- 
tures between 1954 and 1955 are shown in the table 
below. Also shown are the shifts in the demand 
pattern during the course of the 1953-1954 downturn, 
the subsequent recovery in the last half of 1954, and 
the sharp advance from the fourth quarter of 1954 
through to the final quarter of 1955. During the 
course of the downturn, all components of demand 
were declining with the exception of consumer 
expenditure which continued to rise in response to 
the small but steady growth of personal income. In 
the last half of 1954 most of the major segments of 
demand which had previously been declining had 
either stablized or were moving upward again, and 
during 1955 all of these major demand categories 
rose at sharply accelerated rates. 

During the first half of 1955, the increase in 
final purchases was closely paralleled by the rise 
in Canadian production, with imports showing only 
a moderate increase. In the last half of the year, 
however, imports rose very sharply and a substantial 



ill 



portion of the gain in final purchases as well as the 
stepped-wp inventory demand were met from foreign 
sources of supply. Thus, the rise in Canadian 
production in the last half of 1955 was somewhat 
smaller than that which occurred earlier in the year. 



This development reflects the fact that in the latter 
part of 1955 the Canadian economy was approaching 
capacity production in some lines and the quarter- 
to-quarter increases in output were accordingly less 
substantial.

This strength in end-product demand in 1955 was 
reflected in the expansion of the various industrial 
sectors, where production increases over 1954 were 
widely dispersed and substantial in size. Manu- 
facturing production showed an increase of about 
7 per cent, with durable goods production up by 
about 9 per cent and non-durable goods production 
up by about 6 per cent. Substantial increases oc- 
curred in almost all of the manufacturing groups 
which had been affected by the earlier contraction 
in activity, including iron and steel products (up 
14 per cent), electrical apparatus and supplies (up 
12 per cent) and textiles (up 15 per cent). Sharp 
gains were also recorded in wood products, non- 
ferrous metal products, and non-metallic mineral 
products. The only major group to show a decline 
over the year was transportation equipment which 
was down about 2 per cent in spite of a 30 per rent 
increase in motor vehicle output. It may be noted 
that, despite these large gains in the manufacturing 
sub-groups, certain industries remained below the 



level of output which they achieved in 1953. Among 
these groups were clothing and textiles, transport- 
ation equipment, and iron and steel products. 

Related indicators suggest that in the construc- 
tion industry, a gain of about 12 per cent occurred, 
reflecting the record year in housing and the re- 
covery of non-residential construction. In the serv- 
ices group taken as a whole, the advance amounted 
to about 6 per cent in 1955, marking a continuation 
of a general upward trend in these areas of economic 
activity. In the primary industries group, a large 
gain is indicated for agriculture, while forestry, 
public utilities, and mining have shown increases 
ranging from 7 to 16 per cent. Cutput of electric 
power showed an advance of 10 per cent, while 
within the mining group, metals, non-metals, and 
fuels advanced by 11, 15 and 28 per cent, respec- 
tively; these latter gains were partly related to 
strong foreign demand, and the coming into produc- 
tion of new sources of supply.

Accompanying these developments on the produc- 
tion side in 1955, both personal and business in- 
comes continued to expand, reflecting for the most 
part advances in wages and salaries and in invest- 
ment income including corporation profits. The 
successive quarter-to-quarter gains in these two 
important income categories accounted for the 
greater part of the enlarged flow of income during 
the course of ihe year. Thus, wages and salaries 
were approximately 7 per cent above the level of 
the year 1954, while investment income was about 
20 per cent higher, with corporation profits rising 
by about 24 per cent. At the same time, account 
must be taken of the important increase in net 
income of farm operators resulting from the sub- 
stantially higher fevel of crop production in 1955. 
National income as a whole was approximately 11 
per cent above the previous year. 

The rising tempo of economic activity in 1955 
was accompanied by a substantial increase in em- 
ployment, and a decline in unemployment. At year- 
end, the number of persons with jobs was about 4 
per cent higher than in the same period of 1954, 
while the number of persons without jobs and seek- 
ing work in Canada was almost 20 per cent below 
the level of December 1954, or 3.6 per cent of the 



total labour force. The number of persons with pbs 
in the non-agricultural sector rose by 7 per cent 
during the period. Average hours worked per week 
in manufacturing increased during the year by about 
1 per cent. 

Prices on average were relatively stable during 
the course of 1955. However, prices of non-agricul- 
tural primary materials began to edge upward, more 
noticeably after mid-year, while agricultural prices 
continued to decline. In particular, prices of non- 
grain exports products (especially non-ferrous 
metals) showed increases, and the export price 
index of goods rose by 2 per cent. As the price of 
imported goods showed a smaller advance, a slight 
improvement in Canada's terms of trade took place 
in 1955. Construction material prices also increased 
somewhat in 1955, especially in the latter half of 
the year. The continued decline in agricultural 
prices in 1955 reflected the large stocks of grains 
and ample supplies of other agricultural products 
in Canada and abroad. The wholesale price index 
rose by 3 per cent during the year, while the con- 
sumer price index showed little change. 

Gross national product was running at a season- 
ally adjusted annual rate of $27.4 billion in the 



fourth quarter of 1955, an increase of about 1 per 
cent over the third quarter rate. The increase in the 
fourth quarter was the smallest since the upturn in 
economic activity began in mid-1954. The most 
recent increase has brought the rate of gross nation- 
al product to a level about 3 per cent above the 
annual average for the year 1955 as a whole. 

Almost all major segments of income and ex- 
penditure (seasonally adjusted) showed further gains 
in the fourth quarter, with the most prominent move- 
ment in expenditure occurring in the inventory 
sector where a build-up occurred in manufacturing 

and in wholesale trade. Present available data 
indicate that approximately one-half of this ac- 
cumulation was accounted for by higher prices; 
the value of physical change of business inventories 
was smaller than that shown by the book value 



change. At the same time, a further sharp rise in 
imports of goods and services occurred, associated 
with the build-up of inventory stocks, growing 
strength in investment in plant, machinery and equip- 
ment, and higher levels of activity in durable goods 
production. The level of imports was in fact about 
20 per cent above the same period of the preceding 
year in the last half of 1955. 

The gain in production in the fourth quarter was 
concentrated almost entirely in mining, durable 
goods manufacturing, and the trade groups. Within 
manufacturing, a major gain occurred in output of 
electrical apparatus and supplies, while output of 
iron and steel products showed a further large 
advance; production of transportation equipment 
was slightly lower in the fourth quarter than in the 
third, after allowing for seasonal factors.

Note.— Until the end of 1954, annual data for births, deaths and marriages are based on tabulated figures by month of occurrence on the basis of residence. Data

'"Accrued net income of farm operators from farm production. The seasonally adjusted data include an arbitrary smoothing of crop production, standard seasonal 
adjustments for live-stock items and a seasonal adjustment for earnings of the Canadian Wheat Board. Because of the arbitrary elements too precise an interpretation 
should not be given the seasonally adjusted figures for this item. 

< ! >This item differs from column 4, bottom of page 6, in that it excludes undistributed earnings (and the inventory valuation adjustment) of the Canadian
